Trusts are typically implemented by individuals who wish to save their family and loved ones the pain of litigation. If a trust was put in place, the intention is to lay out the distribution of assets and wishes at death, to avoid the need for probating the estate in court. However, there is still room for trust disputes, especially if one or more parties named in the trust believe that it is invalid or that mistakes have been made.
At Rieser & Marx, LLC, our Dayton trust dispute attorneys have handled a wide range of cases that have gone to litigation. We work hard side by side our clients to achieve a favorable outcome in the least stressful manner possible.
Both beneficiaries and those who are outside the trust may be able to file suits challenging the validity of the trust. There are a number of different reasons why a person may question a trust, mostly to do with how assets were left and to whom they were left. Our firm's top priority is to ensure your interests are protected and that your loved one's wishes are kept in mind.
Generally, the intention of a trust dispute is to prove that there was a major issue in the trust that has rendered it invalid. If you believe your loved one was not in their right mind when they made changes to a trust, you will need the help of a Dayton trust dispute attorney to prove it. A trust dispute is very similar to a will contest in that the causes of action are very similar.
